February Blissfull ATC Swap

February's theme for the Blissfull ATC swap was "Love". Lately I've been making lots of little banners so I shared my new love in my ATC and titled it "Heartfelt Banner".

Rubes made an ATC this month as well and her's is titled "Lovely Pink Butterfly".

We sent our ATCs off in a fun pop-up card with a bunch of extra hearts to our partners.
Valentine Pop-up Card
I made quite a few of these cards this Valentines for I love how they stay open and all the hearts come bursting out!

We sent our goodies off to Amy and her daughter over at Ruby Moon Art. Lots of fun creating going on over there. The similarities among us are "lovely". Hee, hee!  We both love lil' bunting/ banners and the girl's both love butterflies along with the color pink and puppies! Our girl's are both the same age so I do hope they'll swap again.  Here's what they sent us....
Love ATCs
Amy sent me 2 ATCs!  Yay!  I love them both... fabric is always a win with me and I dig the painted feel of the other card.  Thanks, Amy!
Rubes received this beauty.  A wonderful mixed media piece and some extra stickers from Amy's daughter.  Oh, the love of swapping makes me giddy.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sometimes love is... quirky.

Sometimes love is... exhausting.

And best of all, love is...sweet.

A quick Valentine's shirt made using a cookie cutter for the heart outline, fusible web, and after ironing it to the shirt some red thread with a zig-zag stitch around the heart's perimeter.

What's New And A Few Cards

Where has February gone? As I look at the past couple years seems like this time of winter is always slim on posting. Probably the flurry of Valentines, snowshoeing and winter blah. Well, there has been quite a bit of sewing going on but no photo evidence yet.  Maybe I should post the mess that is "wiener dog" shirt making but I've little free time as it is.  So instead, here are a few cards I've made recently.
